We could all use more Space.

At home…

Do you live with a hoarder?  Or does your partner have a hobby collection that is taking over your home?

Is it time to clear out the spare bedroom to make way for the baby?

Has your guest bathroom morphed into a bodega?

Are you moving in to a new modern condo, and don’t know what to do with inherited furniture?

Is it Christmas all year round with no place to store that huge Santa statue?

Are you renovating and don’t know what to do with your fine belongings?Loc & Stor 247 (3)At the office…

Is your once productive conference room now a document storage area?

Are you expecting a shipment of seasonal stocks or packaging materials?

Do you need easy 24/7 access to your stocks during the holidays?

Is your current storage too far away?Loc & Stor 247 (2)Up until now, Filipinos have struggled to find an attractive choice for storage. Loc&Stor 24/7 changes all that with its world-class secure self-storage offering. Whatever your storage needs may be, Loc&Stor 24/7 Secure Self-Storage has that extra space that you need.

What they offer is simple: a secure, convenient, and professionally operated location wherein to secure your belongings. To do so, they build, or convert, large buildings for the purpose of self-storage. They subdivide the building using steel partitions that are specifically made for self-storage, and provide units ranging from 1.5 square meter lockers that can accommodate eight balikbayan boxes, to 18 square meter jumbo-size units that can accommodate contents of half a 40-foot sea container. It is different from warehousing, which provides limited security and fire protection for your possessions, co-mingles client’s items, limits access, charges for movement in and out, and may well tie you down to a long-term contract. At Loc&Stor 24/7, they incorporate the best that the self-storage industry has to offer and give you secure, convenient, and professional storage solutions. 

Cutting-edge Security

Many storage choices, including the use of your own home or office, put your possessions at risk. Pilferage, floods, fire, and damage from improper storage can ruin your belongings. Loc&Stor 24/7 takes the security and privacy of your valuables seriously and takes many extra steps to help protect your items.

First of all, Loc&Stor 24/7 discriminately selects and builds at chosen site locations to maximize protection of your possessions. For example, their first facility along C5 in Pasig City, is situated within a guarded, gated compound that has been flood-free for decades. Extensive smoke detectors and sprinkler systems are installed throughout the facility, and the entire facility is built to strict fire and floor-loading codes… these are not retrofitted office buildings with insufficient and unsafe loading capacity. Loc&Stor 24/7 also builds climate-controlled areas where humidity is regulated. Loc & Stor 247 (9)These areas are great for storing goods and possessions that are sensitive to temperature and humidity, such as leather goods, antique documents, books, paintings, winter clothing, and shoes.

Secondly, Loc&Stor 24/7 incorporates cutting-edge security measures to maximize protection of your possessions. Loc&Stor 24/7 uses guards from a leading security agency to provide round-the-clock safety at their facilities. They utilize high-definition Closed Circuit TV (CCTV) cameras with night vision to monitor and record all activities within and around our facility. The lighting and security systems are also backed up by generator systems to protect against a security outage. Moreover, Loc&Stor 24/7 employs the world’s number one, multi-layered security system built specifically for the self-storage industry. Once you have set up an account, you will use a user-defined PIN to access our facility. Your PIN arms and disarms your unit’s alarm, and all access to your unit is electronically logged. The system will even notify you through e-mail whenever your unit is opened.

Lastly to complete the protection-picture, Loc&Stor 24/7 also offers an insurance plan that is custom made for the storer’s needs.

With all this protection, you can sleep peacefully without a concern for your stored possessions.

The facilities are conveniently located close to Manila’s main business and residential areas, and are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Loc&Stor 24/7’s clean and easy to use facilities are equipped with loading and unloading docks to accommodate up to a 40-foot container, plenty of parking, as well as large elevators to facilitate transport of items to upper floors.Loc & Stor 247 (10)They have heavy-duty trolleys and carts that you can freely use on-site to make moving your items much easier.  You can even purchase locks and packing materials right from their retail shop.

Company History

Loc&Stor 24/7 was started in 2014 by Sam Peterson. Prior to its conceptualization, Sam was heading part of a global company that managed, designed, and constructed self-storage facilities across the world, where he focused on Asian countries such as Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, and China to name a few. Through this experience and working with leaders in the self-storage industry, he gained tremendous knowledge and learned global best practices. After a year of market studies, exploration, and rigorous planning, he saw that Filipinos were ready for a world-class self-storage facility and opened the first Loc&Stor 24/7 facility where he brought together the best of his learning and knowledge to create a truly world-class storage offering for Filipinos.

Loc&Stor 24/7 is a member of the US and Asian Self Storage Association and the pioneer in numerous security and safety features in the Philippines, including full facility smoke detection and fire protection, digital CCTV coverage, PIN code access, individual unit alarms, email notifications, and round-the-clock security guards from a top agency. With two facilities in operation, a third nearly complete, and several others under design, Loc&Stor 24/7 is determined to provide a world-class storage experience to a growing segment of Filipino storers.

COMPANY HISTORY & OWNER’S PROFILE

SAM PETERSONLoc & Stor 247 (3)Several years back, Sam shifted gears after 20-years managing businesses for the world’s largest industrial gas company, Linde.  From this large multi-national, he joined the legion of self-storage pioneers in Asia when he took on the MD role at Steel Storage Asia (SSA) in Singapore.  Here, he learned from the best in the industry; covering: design, real estate, financing, construction, operations, and marketing of Self-Storage. As his learnings grew, the allure of owner/operator was too great.  So, four years ago he ventured into the Philippines on his own to create, from scratch, what is now the Philippines largest self-storage operator, Loc&Stor 24/7.

ANNA C. PETERSONLoc & Stor 247 (5)Anna’s background has been in marketing and merchandising.  Her job stints have been in Leo Burnett and McCann Erickson in the Philippines, Toys R Us in the US and Hongkong and Habitat in Thailand.  She also co-founded Impressions Art Studio in Singapore, before moving back to Manila after 25 years of living in various countries.   She is happy to apply and test her many learnings and experiences at Loc&Stor 24/7, where she currently wears many hats – marketing, merchandising, operations, purchasing and a little bit of HR.  “When you own your business, you have to be a jack of all trades and learn new roles as quickly as you can… and also learn when to hire 3rdparty consultants to help out where needed.”  It has been a steep learning curve at times, but it’s been fun.  The best part is when customers come to the facility and are pleasantly surprised at the level of cleanliness, service, and professionalism that we offer.

REINA C. LICAUCOLoc & Stor 247 (2)Reina studied Early Childhood Education and co-founded CHILD Pre-School fresh out of graduate school.  Aside from child education she has always had an interest in art, dabbling in various mediums during her spare time or for relaxation.  This interest in art led her to start Art Corner at PowerBooks where she held workshops for young kids using various mediums, thus combining both her passions.   When her husband started SDIF, a college for low-income families, she took on a teacher role once again, this time teaching English to college level students.  She never imagined herself to be in business, but she has been with Loc&Stor 24/7 since day one, learning the ins and outs of running a world-class self-storage facility.  In line with her background in education, she trains the staff at Loc&Stor 24/7, and assists with operations, sales and HR.  “Helping out in Loc&Stor pushed me out of my comfort zone — but it’s been worth it, seeing it grow.”
